Is my girlfriend pregnant?

Usually I am a pretty careful guy when it comes to sex. I always use condoms and pull out methods to ensure I limitate the chance of getting my girlfriend pregnant. However, around 2 weeks ago, we were celebrating for Christmas and I forgot to buy condoms. But since we were already getting it on, I did it without condom that day. I was very sure I finished outside that night. I didn't thought much about it until yesterday she told me that she have some spotting, brown color blood on her pad but no period. Apparently spotting is an indication for pregnancy and the spotting also happened a week before her expected period, which apparently is another bad sign. I know I ****** up big time and am super stressed out right now. I want to know if anyone experience similar symptoms before? I am a poor *** university student and it would definitely hurt me economically to pay for abortion. Anyone can give me some advice would be appreciated. Thank you

Your incident was about 14 days before the expected period and thus close to ovulation time. Since you are sure you pulled out in time (and did not go back in?) the chance of pregnancy is low. She is not yet telling of any other early pregnancy signs. You are in the two week wait. Run a home pregnancy test on first morning pee when her period was supposed to come. Should you together decide an abortion is necessary, call Planned Parenthood and ask if they know of any financial assistance.

Thank you for the reply, I have an update on the situation but am confused by it. As I said before, she have brown blood spotting on the first day, and it's on the 6th day now. She said she still have brown blood coming out continuously little by little everyday and only small amount red blood on second day. What would this symptoms she described be? Thank you
Zach, it's three weeks since the incident and past time for a normal period. She can run a home pregnancy test any morning now and be fairly confident of the result. Since she is not complaining of other early pregnancy signs I think the test will be negative. The unusual brown spotting (old blood) instead of a normal period suggests she had an abnormal cycle last month. If her next period is not normal a visit with her gynecologist  would be a good idea. That's the best I can offer, sorry!
